Jimi Hendrix mosaic portrait expected to fetch 16K pounds at auction
London, Feb 25 (ANI): A unique mosaic portrait of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix, made from more than 5,000 different coloured Fender plectrums, is expected to fetch up to 16,000 pounds at an auction here.
The artwork, created by Manchester-based artist Ed Chapman, will be unveiled at a charity event at London's Abbey Road Studios, reports the BBC.
The 39-year-old artist said the 120cm x 100cm work took him several days to complete.
"Jimi Hendrix is a guitar maestro and nobody played a Fender guitar like him. I decided to use plectrums to create a portrait of him because I like experimenting with different materials and textures and I think it is a fitting tribute to the musician," said Chapman.
"There's no better place for it to go on sale than at a legendary home of music and I hope it raises as much as possible for charity," he added.
Money raised from the sale will go to Cancer Research UK. (ANI)
